Registration of the Higher Education Institution

The European Student Card provides an exchange platform to store and deliver students’ data.
It works following this procedure:
1) The participating Higher Education Institutions (HEI) register as institutions in the exchange platform and can then join the European Student Card process;
2) The HEI proceeds to register it’s students, who are informed about the registration;
3) The students have to confirm the registration in the exchange platform.


Data are stored only in home institution, not in the international platform. Both HEIs and students can opt-out at any time and all data will be removed.



Student registration

4) Once registered on the ESC platform, students receive the ESC-compatible card from their home institution, as well as an e-mail to confirm and control which kind of data they what to share;
5) The electronic device embedded in the card allows students to benefit from several services whenever they go abroad. Just by checking-in with the card, through the available terminals, the student’s status is confirmed (retrieved and trasmitted to and from the exchange platform by the home institution).


All data transfers are protected by end-to-end encryption protocols, in order to avoid the exploitation of personal informations.
